Definitition of Members
- Branch Members are those who can attend a Branch meeting and be involved in the activities of the Association at all levels. They are considered to be a volunteer and are covered by SACWA Insurance Policies. They have voting rights at Branch and Group level, and can be a voting delegate at State Council if so approved by the Branch or Group. Members rates apply both The Club and Holiday Cottages in South Australia.
- Individual Members are those who are not able to participate in Association activities at any level, therefore are not considered to be a volunteer or covered by SACWA Insurance Policies. The membership subscription is the standard membership fee + a levy as a way of donation to compensate for the inability to volunteer time or assist towards the operation of the Association. They have no voting rights at Branch or Group level, and cannot be a voting delegate at State Council. Members rates apply both The Club and Holiday Cottages in South Australia.
- Junior Membership is for children from birth to 18 years of age. They have the ability to volunteer at Branch level under the supervision of their mother (who must be a Branch Member) and as such are covered by SACWA Insurance Policies. They do not have voting rights at any level.
